This Month


21st Aug 2014   Victoria Falls | Choices to make

Victoria Falls, which can be seen both from Zambia and Zimbabwe, is one of the great natural wonders. Well worth combining with a safari when in southern Africa.

 




19th Aug 2014   Discover the Lower Zambezi National Park | Safari in Zambia

14th Aug 2014   The Great Wildebeest Migration | Tanzania and Kenya
 

By Mike

 

Over one million wildebeest, quarter of a million zebra and about half a million gazelle cruise the East Africa plains seeking out the best grassland. Quite a crowd!

 




12th Aug 2014   Seychelles | Top Beach Destinations

1st Aug 2014   Little Vumbura, Botswana: Property of the Month
 

By Georgina

 

This month’s featured property is Little Vumbura: a luxury tented camp on a picturesque island surrounded by floodplains. Excellent water based activities and consistently good wildlife.
